Citizens Advisory Board seeks members

The Pierce County Department of Community Services is seeking new members to serve on the Pierce County Citizens Advisory Board. The board makes recommendations for allocating Community Development Block Grant and Emergency Shelter Grant dollars.

Members will have the opportunity to reduce the impact of poverty and homelessness on families and individuals by funding programs which ease these conditions.

In monthly evening meetings, the members of the Citizens Advisory Board determine community needs, prioritize program activities, evaluate funding applications and make recommendations to the County Council and County Executive on program funding. Staff support is provided by the department.

To volunteer, you may obtain a copy of the application at or by calling the Department of Community Services at (253) 798-7205.
